GFI near basement wash tub

Good Evening,
I would like to put a GFI where there is an outlet now near the basement wash tub. The washing machine which empties into this tub is plugged into it as is the sump pump the furnace also dumps into the sump pump.
My only concern is that if the GFI pops I will not know about it & there will be a nice flood on my hands especially when I'm washing clothes.
My Question is is there any kind of alarm on the market to let me know if this were to happen?
Thank you for your time!
